Statistics

Most students begin their work in statistics in one of two courses, depending
upon their background in mathematics.
 Math 115, Introduction to Statistics, introduces basic concepts of variability and uncertainty and common statistics concepts, such as point and interval estimation and hypothesis testing.
 Math 209, Applied Statistics, builds upon a student's calculus background to cover the application of basic statistics using a range of methods.
 Students with extensive background in both mathematics and statistics may begin with upperlevel courses, such as the Design and Analysis of Experiments and Statistical Modeling.
Advanced Placement Policy
 Students scoring 1–3 on AP Statistics or with a yearlong statistics course in high school are encouraged to take mathematics through Math 131, Calculus I, before taking statistics. After Calculus I, students should consider the calculusbased Math 209, Applied Statistics.
 Students scoring 4 or 5 on the AP Statistics Examination receive 4 credits for Math 115, Introduction to Statistics. Such students are encouraged to complete mathematics through Math 133, Calculus II (if they have not already done so), and start statistics at the 300 level.
